Criminal Trespass

arrestBasically, trespassing is being somewhere you are not supposed to be. While it might seem harmless, it is important to take these types of accusations seriously. Any type of criminal conviction can impact your ability to get jobs and even rent an apartment. Criminal trespass is broken up into two degrees.

First degree criminal trespass is a gross misdemeanor, which means the maximum penalty is 364 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. This is charged when an individual knowingly enters or remains in a building unlawfully. A common example is when someone is asked to leave a restaurant or bar and refuses to leave.

Second degree criminal trespass, instead is a misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Second degree criminal trespass is like first degree, except without the building. An example would include someone loitering in a non-building parking lot after previously being notified not to do so.

If you are facing a criminal trespass charge, do not hesitate to give our Everett, Washington office a call. We will be more than happy to answer your questions and discuss your options.

"Jason and his team are excellent!! Everyone on the staff is super helpful and always follows up as promised. Jason has continuously gone above and beyond what's expected of him, which really put me at ease and let me know he was there to have my back. He's extremely knowledgeable of the law, has tons of experience, and make sure he takes the time to get the best outcome possible. Things would have been much worse for me without Jason's help."
